Tampa man charged with operating grow house

A Tampa man faces multiple drug charged after deputies, acting on a tip, say he operated a grow house out of his home.

Deputies responded to the home of Gregory W. Parks, 40, at 2229 N. Spring Glade Circle on Wednesday after receiving an anonymous tip through Crime Stoppers.

When they arrived, detectives found a marijuana plant on the front porch.

After obtaining a search warrant, deputies found 23 bags (660 grams) of marijuana packaged for sale, along with two small bags of cocaine, a .380-caliber pistol, and $2,075 in cash.

Two children living at the home were placed in a temporary shelter.

Parks is jailed on charged including drug possession, child neglect, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
